By now everyone has seen the quote from Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment: “I’m a guy who doesn’t see anything good having come from the Internet, period.” What I didn’t know was this guy was a former CEO of AOL. A media company CEO making a statement like this pretty much tells me that this guy isn’t necessarily anti-internet, he just has absolutely no strategy for properly using it. None. He hasn’t just lost the battle; he didn’t even know one was happening until it was too late.
I’m pretty passionate and open about much of my opinions on media and piracy (although maybe a tiny bit less open since earning my cissp). And this article pretty much echoes, eloquently, my position on these matters.
